Grand Curriculum Designs is a pioneering programme for curriculum leaders, enabling real and sustainable school improvement through practice-focused professional development.
'I now see the value of collecting baseline evidence and the different ways of evaluating impact…it's not just about vague feelings and gut instinct'.
